Pro EZGC Update: Comprehensive 209 compound Library of Brominated Diphenyl Ethers and a New Column Format

While attending Dioxin 2018 in Krakow, I noticed that several academic researchers were studying  the toxicity of specific PBDE congeners not on the standard target compound list for EPA method 1614 (or the EU equivalent). Though PBDE mixtures have been phased out of production and use, the concentrations in the environment have not been declining […]

The Rtx-1614 separates MORE halogenated flame retardants than just Polybrominated Diphenyl Ethers (PBDEs)!

Halogenated flame retardants (HFRs) are used in numerous household and office products, including electronics, carpeting and furniture.  Polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs), a subset of HFRs, have been found to be persistent and bioaccumulative in the environment.  While the main technical mixtures of PBDEs have mostly been phased out of production and use, the concentrations in […]
